DOTs across the nation are raising awareness for safe driving practices. To gather community involvement, the Tennessee Department of Transportation has created a contest for safety slogans to display on overhead signs across the state.
Entrants can choose one of five categories for their safety slogan:

  • Speeding
  • Distracted driving
  • Impaired driving
  • Seat belts
  • Aggressive driving

TDOT is accepting submissions until January 16, and then the public will vote on their favorite slogans until February 6. The winning slogans will be displayed on highways across Tennessee. Remember, shorter slogans work best since they’re easier to read while driving.

We at Mead & Hunt have taken a pledge to quit using electronic devices while driving and encourage you to do the same. Help show your support for safe driving in a new, inventive way with the TDOT safety slogan contest. You may just save a life.
